Writing is a solitary pursuit, but rewriting often requires community. There comes a point when we need several pairs of eyes looking at our work, when we need thoughtful readers who can help guide us in our revision in our attempt to see again. In critique, we must be honest in our reactions, but we also must dig deeper, questioning our knee-jerk responses and learning to present our thoughts and suggestions in constructive ways that everyone can learn from.

This workshop-only class is for writers who know the basics and have several picture book projects underway, and who are now eager to have their work critiqued in a large-group setting. These students must also be interested in practicing the valuable skill of peer critique, and must be willing to learn from critiquing others' manuscripts strategies that can be applied to their own current and future writing. This class will provide you with careful, considerate, constructive—and, yes, HONEST—discussions of your work, 2-3 distinct manuscripts per student, or multiple revisions of the same piece. Let's dig into your stories and help you make them the best they can be, and help you grow as a writer and a reader in the process!
